Disable All Emojis


We would like to disable all Emojis system wide. I have turned off the default user preference for “Use Emojis”, here:

Settings >> Accounts >> Default User Preferences >> “Use Emojis”

However users are able to turn “Use Emojis” back on in their “My Account” control panel . Is there a way to permanently disable Emojis?

I am afraid you can’t do this using a settings as of now.

What can be done, is to hide this option, using some css trick. Not ideal, I know.

I think this is a nice feature to have:
